I am coming to you, a seasoned Polynesian guest, for your input. We are about to go to Disney Polynesian for the first time and have become increasingly uneasy about staying there after reading about two separate instances of items stolen out of guest rooms, as well as dirty rooms and bad service.
Have you ever felt uncomfortable about the security or safety? We obviously want to be excited about our first trip to the Polynesian but with how expensive it is and the bad feedback I have read, I am hoping we did not make a mistake in our choice of resort. Please advise….thank you for your time.

Yes, I am a seasoned Polynesian guest and a Polynesian fan. I have never had any problems with safety at the Polynesian Resort or anywhere else at Disney World.
One of our favorite things to do is when we get back to the resort we run over to Captain Cooks and grab a drink. We were so comfortable that we let the kids go by themselves. Never thought twice about it.
About the cleanliness thing. The Polynesian Resort has over 800 rooms. The resort has an 80% occupation rate. That means on any given night over 600 rooms are filled. For 365 nights a year. There are bound to be some problems. Have we ever been disappointed by the cleanliness of a room? Not really. Have we had problems in a Disney Hotel? Sure. But all in all we’ve found Disney housekeeping to be outstanding.
One of the problems the Polynesian Resort has is it costs so much that people expect to be catered to every minute of every day and are disappointed. When you pay $400.00 or more per night you expect more, true, but you have to be reasonable.
Dad’s Bottom Line
Are there ever problems at the Polynesian Resort? No never. Just kidding. I’m sure some people have had rooms that aren’t up to Disney standards. That happens at every hotel. Is the Polynesian the perfect resort? No, but what resort is? The Polynesian is a beautiful resort in a beautiful place. Relax, go and have a great time.
